The game divides vehicles in different specs.
In The Crew, the player has the opportunity to drive different land vehicles, divided in a total of 9 different vehicle specs.
- Fullstock. The base spec for all purchased cars. Minimal Customization. "How it rolls off the dealer lot. This is your basic ride and a blank canvas for your own modified evolution!"
- Street. The First spec you unlock. Tuner is located in Detroit. Mexican Town. "Dealer options and off the shelf DIY additions. Useable day-to-day ride with enough grunt to have serious fun."
- Dirt. Dirt Spec Will be unlocked at level 10. Tuner is located in New York, Brooklyn. "Internal crash cage; uprated suspension; dirt tires on tough rims; sump guards and braided hosing; flaps, fenders and spots; newer models uprated to all wheel drive. Go tear up those backwoods!"
- Performance. Also known as "Perf" spec. Unlocked at level 20. Located in Miami, Little Haiti. "Anything to get the power up! Holes cut here and there, after market components, track day tires on lightweight rims. There’s no hiding the intent here – this machine is built to compete."

"Bespoke, full crash cage chassis; uprated suspension, including long travel shocks; uprated transmission; full bash guard package, including bull bars and skid plates; high profile, off road tires on steel rims.
